For reasons so obvious I won't even bother trying to explain them, Memorial Day has come to be synonymous with one thing and one thing only.
(Wait. There's also the furniture sales.)
Ok, two things and two things only.
Furniture sales, and this:
Yep, all over the country people are celebrating our military heroes by consuming good old-fashioned American hamburgers...
Of course, bakeries know there's more to this holiday than food that looks like the other food you'll be eating today. That's why they also offer more "patriotic" designs; to stress the importance of remembering and honoring the sacrifices of our military.
Well, however you choose to celebrate it, may you have a wonderful Memorial Day. And remember: always show pride in your country by letting your freak flag fly.
Whichever you choose, just get rid of it. [shudder]
